Jacq's New Puppy
Jacq had been asking for a puppy for over a year, and she became especially hopeful while we were away on sabbatical. After much thought, we decided we could indeed get her a puppy - provided it was small and well equipped for cold weather. That narrows the possible breeds down quite a lot. But in the end we found the perfect pup for Jacq: her name is "Pixel" (Jacq chose it, of course) and she's a small American Eskimo dog. She's active, energetic, inquisitive, mischievous, and always, always happy. What a delight!
